Student captures people’s expressions after being told they’re beautiful. Amazing how a few words of encouragement can make (or break) someone’s day. 18-year-old Shea Glover proves this with a simple but powerful social experiment.

Student captures people’s expressions after being told they’re beautiful

In the video below, the high school student from Chicago went around campus inviting students and faculty to pose for portraits, unaware of her true intention. She tells them ‘I’m taking pictures of things I find beautiful’ and catches all of them off guard. Many broke out into wide smiles and laughs, some became shy, others became skeptical or even got angry – all because of one sentence about perception and beauty. It’s a surprising glimpse at how we perceive ourselves and how a compliment does wonders to the self-esteem of others.

René Burri speaks about the Kremlin, Picasso and the importance of teaching children to see

It was recorded on Wednesday 24 April 2013. More information about our upcoming talks and events can be found here. During his fifty-year career Magnum photographer René Burri has built a body of work that traces some of the world’s most historically significant moments from East Germany and the USSR before the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain, throughout China and Cuba over several decades, and in Vietnam and the Suez Crisis. René Burri was born in Zurich in 1933 and spent his early years studying colour, composition and design at the renowned School of Arts and Crafts in Zurich. Burri’s life changed forever when the well-known photographer Werner Bischof introduced him to the prestigious photography agency Magnum Photos.
